What a time to disappear for 3 days…right before the party! Well, I’m back and just in time! :-) I’ll give you the condensed version of the weekend. We took the boys to the Dizzy Dean All-Stars, 2 hours from home. Although they played hard, we lost. Since my daughter lives in that area, we picked up 2 of my grandsons and brought them home for the week.
Father’s Day was awesome! We had all but 2 of our children home…even that is a rare occasion, so I didn’t get near the computer! Yesterday, was a major “catch up” day and I’m still not caught up! This morning I figured that I had better make the time or it just wasn’t going to happen! So, here we go!
Tomorrow is the big party! I’m so excited! If this is the first time that you have heard about my Garden Party, here are the details. The party begins at 9am eastern time tomorrow and ends at 9 pm Friday. Please bring a garden, outdoor or summer project to share via linky. Mingle by visiting some of the other projects shown, and make conversation by leaving a comment on the projects that you have found inspiring. There will be different giveaways each day. The details on those are here. It will be a fun and lively party! I am working on a couple of projects to share. This is one that I couldn’t wait to do or share! My daughter found these while we were at the thrift store last week.
She said “These are some cool skewers” and as I looked over, my heart started beating faster…I said “Yes they are. Do you want them?” She replied “uh-uh, but I thought you might like’em.” ‘Nuff said! I
grabbed them out of her hands, took them from her as she offered them and said “These will make awesome garden stakes!”
Even though the ceramic tops are pretty self explanatory, I wanted to dress them up a bit with their names. I thought that a small ceramic tile with their name in vinyl might work. I couldn’t find what I was seeing in my head and started to get discouraged until I found these at Home Depot:
They are awesome! Small glass tiles! They are glued to mesh to hold them together, but they peel up easily. I cut their names out in vinyl with my Craft Robo and stuck them on with Gorilla Super glue. EASY!
Here they are all ready to go out in the garden!
I’ll be bringing them to the party!
Things were still happening even though I was gone! I opened my email yesterday to find that my Dressed up Solar Light
made the top 10 over at the CSI Project for the Dollar Store Challenge!
And my DIY Gazing Ball,
(which I may have found a new stand for)…was featured by Ginger at Super Stinky Boys!
I’m going to share my markers at these parties:
